Darling, you got to let me know
Should I stay or should I go?
If you say that you are mine
I'll be here 'til the end of time
So you got to let me know
Should I stay or should I go?

It's always tease, tease, tease
You're happy when I'm on my knees
One day it's fine and next it's black
So if you want me off your back
Well, come on and let me know
Should I stay or should I go?

Should I stay or should I go now?
Should I stay or should I go now?
If I go, there will be trouble
And if I stay it will be double
So come on and let me know

This indecision's bugging me (esta indecisión me molesta)
If you don't want me, set me free (si no me quieres, librarme)
Exactly whom I'm supposed to be (dígame que tengo ser)
Don't you know which clothes even fit me? (sabes que ropa me quedra)
Come on and let me know (me tienes que decir)
Should I cool it or should I blow? (me debo ir o quedarme)

Split

(Soplo, enfrió o lo soplo)

Should I stay or should I go now? (yo me enfrió o lo soplo)
Should I stay or should I go now? (yo me enfrió o lo soplo)
If I go there will be trouble (si me voy va a haber peligro)
And if I stay it will be double (si me quedo sera el doble)
So ya gotta let me know (me tienes que decir)
Should I cool it or should I blow? (me debo ir o quedarme)

Should I stay or should I go now? (tengo frío por los ojos)
If I go there will be trouble (si me voy va haber peligro)
And if I stay it wil be double (si me quedo sera el doble)
So ya gotta let me know me tienes que decir
Should I stay or should I go?

    My Interpretationfirst listened to this tune around the same time I first started with pot. I would get so fried listening to this song that after the first stanza, partly because the remaining lyrics never overtly mentioned the romantic relationship again, my imagination would twist the song's meaning to something ridiculously metaphysical. My state of "deeper awareness" would hear "should I stay or should I go?" as asking God whether I should continue living or not. Should I stay on this Earth or leave it? My thoughts couldn't escape this way of thinking when I was in a room with friends and we were blasting that song full volume. The lyrics were drilled into my brain by the volume and I couldn't ponder anything else. It was classic stoner micro-focus! It was a bit too much and too deep to handle. I laugh at myself now when I recall it. Funny song to get deep about, but I suppose anything can seem ultra-deep when you've got some good shite!
